Sinopsis de The confession de ROUSSEAU JEAN-JACQUES:

Among the notable books of later times-we may say, without exaggeration, of all time--must be reckoned The Confessions of Jean Jacques Rousseau. It deals with leading personages and transactions of a momentous epoch, when absolutism and feudalism were rallying for their last struggle against the modern spirit, chiefly represented by Voltaire, the Encyclopedists, and Rousseau himself--a struggle to which, after many fierce intestine quarrels and sanguinary wars throughout Europe and America, has succeeded the prevalence of those more tolerant and rational principles by which the statesmen of our own day are actuated.

On these matters, however, it is not our province to enlarge- nor is it necessary to furnish any detailed account of our authors political, religious, and philosophic axioms and systems, his paradoxes and his errors in logic: these have been so long and so exhaustively disputed over by contending factions that little is left for even the most assiduous gleaner in the field. The inquirer will find, in Mr. John Moneys excellent work, the opinions of Rousseau reviewed succinctly and impartially. The Contrat Social, the Lattres Ecrites de la Montagne, and other treatises that once aroused fierce controversy, may therefore be left in the repose to which they have long been consigned, so far as the mass of mankind is concerned, though they must always form part of the library of the politician and the historian. One prefers to turn to the man Rousseau as he paints himself in the remarkable work before us.

That the task which he undertook in offering to show himself--as Persius puts it--Intus et in cute, to posterity, exceeded his powers, is a trite criticism- like all human enterprises, his purpose was only imperfectly fulfilled- but this circumstance in no way lessens the attractive qualities of his book, not only for the student of history or psychology, but for the intelligent man of the world. Its startling frankness gives it a peculiar interest wanting in most other autobiographies.

Many censors have elected to sit in judgment on the failings of this strangely constituted being, and some have pronounced upon him very severe sentences. Let it be said once for all that his faults and mistakes were generally due to causes over which he had but little control, such as a defective education, a too acute sensitiveness, which engendered suspicion of his fellows, irresolution, an overstrained sense of honour and independence, and an obstinate refusal to take advice from those who really wished to befriend him- nor should it be forgotten that he was afflicted during the greater part of his life with an incurable disease.

Lord Byron had a soul near akin to Rousseaus, whose writings naturally made a deep impression on the poets mind, and probably had an influence on his conduct and modes of thought: In some stanzas of Childe Harold this sympathy is expressed with truth and power- especially is the weakness of the Swiss philosophers character summed up in the following admirable lines:

"Here the self-torturing sophist, wild Rousseau, The apostle of affliction, he who threw Enchantment over passion, and from woe Wrung overwhelming eloquence, first drew The breath which made him wretched- yet he knew How to make madness beautiful, and cast Oer erring deeds and thoughts a heavenly hue Of words, like sunbeams, dazzling as they passed The eyes, which oer them shed tears feelingly and fast.

"His life was one long war with self-sought foes, Or friends by him self-banished- for his mind Had grown Suspicions sanctuary, and chose, For its own cruel sacrifice, the kind, Gainst whom he raged with fury strange a...
